4 to 6 servings with 1 cup cocktail sauce


  • 6 pounds cooked stone crab claws
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons hot chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Crack the claws by placing them on a cutting board, covering them with a towel, and hitting the knuckle of the claw with a mallet. Store the crabs on ice until ready to serve.

To make the dipping sauce, stir together the mayonnaise, hot chili sauce, ginger, garlic, green onions, lime juice, chopped cilantro, white pepper and salt in a medium bowl and refrigerate, covered for half an hour before serving.

When ready to serve, pile the crab claws on platters, garnish with the lime wedges and cilantro leaves and serve with  Cocktail Sauce.
